Alcoa embarked on an upgrade project of its Pinjarra Smelter site some two years ago. The upgrade project costed at $411 Million dollars includes the installation of two additional lines to keep up with the demand of its customers for Aluminium products.
Epica Solutions has been able to assist the project through Hatch Engineering (Implementation Contractor) with the provision of technical personnel to conduct the cataloguing of the new equipment as well as assist in the technical spares assessing task. Later in the project Epica Solutions also supplied a Materials Controller. This project was the catalyst for the development of its Spares Assessment Software (SAM).
